Congratulations and pass the sweet tea, please! Country music will be well-represented at this year's Daytime Emmy Awards.

Little Big Town collected a nomination in the Outstanding Original Song category for "Good Afternoon"—a song they co-wrote with The Warren Brothers for ABC's Good Afternoon America. The band's Jimi Westbrook commented, "What an unexpected honor to be nominated for an Emmy. This is something we never could have dreamed up as a band and we are beyond thrilled to say the least!"

Trisha Yearwood's Food Network show, Trisha's Southern Kitchen, earned a nomination for Outstanding Culinary Program only a year after its debut. The weekly show highlights home cooking from Trisha and her family, but also features personal stories and music. The next season of Trisha's Southern Kitchen kicks off May 25.

Trisha and LBT both have Grammy Awards to their credit, so if they nail down these Emmys, they'll be halfway to an EGOT.
